JUST CALL ME 'LONE LEE' is a marked improvement over Tim 'Love' Lee's first album, CONFESSIONS OF A SELECTOR. For one, there's much less reliance on samples. Second, he draws on more influences on his tracks, particularly from the country-western genre. "Exit 747" could have been written by Ennio Morricone, while "Twilight Reservation" shuffles at its own morose pace. The "One Night Samba" interlude is the pure essence of what lounge music is, and followed, as it is, by gentle and sensuous "One Night Samba." "The Goodbye Highway" is similarly gentle, boosted by its careful percussion and the musical moments of mystery and grace (not to mention trucker chatter mixed in with a harp!). And the closing track, "Go Down Dixie," has such a lingering sadness with its crackly guitar and plaintive vocal sample that it makes you feel like you've been stranded on the open plain. Strangely powerful.
